Welcome to the Whitehouse Restaurant


Welcome to the Whitehouse.

We are bowled over to learn that we have been awardd the Good Food Guide's Scottish Local Restaurant of the Year 2016. This is some of what they said about us

Remote Highland restaurant elected Scotland’s favourite eatery

The Whitehouse Restaurant Scoops Reader Award for Best Local Restaurant in Scotland

A restaurant in the Highlands has beaten eateries across the country to be named the Regional Winner for Scotland in the Good Food Guide Local Restaurant of the Year Awards.  The Whitehouse Restaurant, in Lochaline has been nominated by its customers to be the top local choice in Scotland, despite its remote location.

The Whitehouse Restaurant is described by the Good Food Guide (GFG), which is published by Waitrose, as being “about as remote as you can get without leaving the mainland”. Its address makes it one of the hardest to reach restaurants ever to have won a GFG  award. Diners travelling from outwith the local area will most likely have to take a ferry.

<span 12px;"="">We are open Tuesday through to Saturday every week for lunch and dinner. Lunch is usually served between 12 and 2 pm . Dinner is from 6pm. If you would like to come at other times please call us as we will always try and accomodate you.

We strongly advise booking as we are small and can get very busy.  If you would like to make a booking please do call us on 01967421777 and speak to us.  If you have to leave a message  we will call you back to confirm your booking.
